NMMA To Host Webinar on Australian Market


The National Marine Manufacturers Association will host a free webinar highlighting opportunities for U.S. manufacturers in the Australian boat industry.

The webinar is scheduled for April 13 at 6 p.m. (Eastern Time), NMMA said in a statement.

The session will include trade representatives, marine industry trade specialists from the U.S. Commercial Service, and NMMA Canada president Sara Anghel.

“Australia is consistently ranked as a leading market for U.S. recreational marine products, valued at over US$40 million, and the U.S. continues to be a major exporter of marine products,” NMMA’s statement said. One in 10 Australians has a boat license.

NMMA said the webinar is open to its members and industry stakeholders. Click here to register.
